October Is Information Literacy Month

unesco-2The Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries, Vermont School Library Association, and the Vermont Library Association believe that information literacy is crucial to Vermonters’ success from K-20, into the workplace and continuing throughout the lifespan. While librarians and libraries provide the foundation for teaching information literacy skills, offering quality information sources and collaborative spaces for all Vermonters, we do not work alone in valuing and building these skills…There is an urgent need for dialog among key stakeholders to raise awareness of the importance of information literacy as a lifelong skill, strengthen channels of communication to help students transition their skills from one setting to another, and to help Vermont’s students become information literate adults and citizens.

Library Snapshot Day (Any Day April 10 – 16)

Taking place during National Library Week (April 10 – 16), Library Snapshot Day is a great way of documenting all the vital services libraries provide to the citizens of Vermont. For more information, please visit: www.vtlibraryday.wordpress.com

The more libraries we have participating, the better our final statistics will be, so be sure to join us for this exciting initiative!  We look forward to getting a vision of Vermont libraries!
